Housing.com is not only well known in the technology circles but also has an equally emphatic impression on the general masses. All those who have visited/used the site for property purchase and search have been satisfied with the results and have found additional services offered by the portal quite helpful. Users have also found newer services of the portal quite useful and their feedback is the invaluable basis for many more services to come.
The portal remains a property search hub at heart. To enable its reach, it has also introduced the housing.com app on both Android and iOS platforms. This housing app is an extension of the portal on the mobile platform. Its basic function is to help users search properties. The interface has expansive features to allow convenient and quick search.
When to use the Housing.com App?
Let us assume that a user wants to search for a property in Ahmedabad. The city is an emerging real estate market, particularly because of the new Smart City being established in the peripheral regions. Some of the most modern new residential projects in Ahmedabad are being developed in those areas.
Our user is stuck in a traffic jam and has half an hour to forty five minutes at hand. This is when the housing.com app helps him do useful work and allows him to find properties with ease. The app interface is intuitive and does not pose a challenge while navigating.
The first search option requires the user to enter the name of the city. This is followed by the selecting the name of a locality from a drop down list. It is interesting to know that even if the user does not have a locality preference, the list provides him with options to start the property search with. The following screen offers him filters like accommodation type and budget intervals.
Then all the search results are exhibited in a map of the locality that has been chosen earlier. This is where the user finds additional filters which help him narrow down the search preferences. Users can find both old and new residential projects in Ahemdabad using the app.
Property detail is provided comprehensively so that any investor does not have to think twice before investing.
Housing.com has released the latest version of its Android app which comprises of a login feature that allows all user data to be captured on the cloud. This means that after a user has shortlisted a property, the access of its detail is no longer restricted to the mobile phone. At a later point he can access the same details from other devices as well. The multiple platform access reduces the dependence on a device.
Suppose the user has decided to opt for an apartment from one of the new residential projects in Ahmedabad. When he saves the property details by tapping “Shortlist” option, he can later access them for comparison with other shortlisted options to reach a final decision.
Another scenario could be that the user has not found what he is looking for. Then the app allows him to feed his requirements which are then taken up by the housing team and worked upon. If the person performs the home searching exercise for 2 or 3 hours, he would have zeroed in on a property.
